Question re shooting RAW+JPEG

Can anyone tell me if the K-3 can be set to shoot a B&W JPEG + RAW? This would let you see the B&W shot on the LCD, while capturing all of the data via the RAW file. Most of my work ends up being in black and white and when I'm "in the zone" I think I pretty much think in B&W when shooting (a hangover from many years of film shooting), but this capability would be nice.

You can do this on pretty much every DSLR ever made. Don't see why the K-3 would be much different.

You don't even need to shoot JPEG along side. The raw preview JPEG will be in B&W as well.

It's very handy, though often I use their digital filter to post-process the raw image in the camera; that way I can adjust it or tone it rather than accept the straight jpeg version of B&W.
